As spring rears its welcome head, we get closer and closer to the Pitchfork Music Festival. With its reasonable ticket prices, comfortable and positive environment in the heart of Chicago, and combination of already internationally acclaimed acts and innovative up-and-comers, the Pitchfork Music Festival, which celebrates its fifth anniversary this year, is one of the best music festivals around.

This year's festival, happening Friday, July 16 – Sunday, July 18 in Chicago's Union Park, features a huge range of already announced acts including Pavement, Modest Mouse, LCD Soundsystem, Panda Bear, Broken Social Scene, St. Vincent, El-P, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Raekwon, Girls, Titus Andronicus, Bear in Heaven, Sleigh Bells, Freddie Gibbs and many more. We are pleased to announce another exceptional round of acts to the lineup, further making this year's event the best Pitchfork Music Festival yet. New additions to Friday include the classic pop of Sweden's Robyn and the return of art-rockers Liars, as well as The Tallest Man on Earth and Sharon Van Etten, while Saturday sees the additions of Wolf Parade, Barcelona-based Delorean, and the hazy summer vibes of Real Estate, as well as Free Energy, jj, WHY?, Kurt Vile, and Netherfriends. Sunday will now also feature Big Boi, party-starting dancehall revivalists Major Lazer, and Beach House, Neon Indian, Surfer Blood, Local Natives, Washed Out and Best Coast.

Single-day tickets can be purchased for $40 for all three days of the festival at www.pitchforkmusicfestival.com. As previously reported, three-day passes sold out in record time and are no longer available. This year, Friday will feature more bands for festival-goers to enjoy than in year's past.
